Jean Madar, Chairman & Chief Executive Officer of Inter Parfums stated, “Net sales for the quarter ended March 31, 2023 were not only a first quarter record but were also the highest for any quarter in our history. Our European operations grew sales by 26% in dollars or 29% in constant currency with our three largest brands generating exceptional growth. In dollars, Jimmy Choo, Montblanc and Coach sales rose 63%, 28%, and 24%, respectively. Additionally, sales by several of our mid-sized brands started the year on a strong note, most notably Karl Lagerfeld, Boucheron and Rochas, all of which achieved double-digit sales growth. While our European operations launched a number of brand extensions, including Jimmy Choo Blossom, Eau de Rochas Citron Soleil, Montblanc Signature Absolue and Kate Spade Chérie, the sales gains were primarily due to established lines.”

Mr. Madar continued, “Our U.S. operations also had a strong start growing 19% off a high 2022 base when first quarter sales had expanded 77%. This increase was driven by the addition and extension of Donna Karan and DKNY to our portfolio and double-digit growth for Ferragamo and Oscar de la Renta, following successful brand extensions. Additionally, we introduced brand extensions within established lines for Abercrombie & Fitch, and MCM. After the challenging lockdowns, the progressive reopening of China buoyed the Ferragamo and Anna Sui brands. As expected, the ERP implementation weighed on our quarterly results, impacting GUESS disproportionately which was flat off a high base in 2022, but we have strong orders that we will be fulfilling during the second quarter.”

He concluded, “We are strengthening our position within the fragrance industry overall and especially within the designer/prestige category. As we announced late last year, the Lacoste fragrance business will be directed and operated by our Paris operations come January 2024.”

Raises 2023 Guidance:

Michel Atwood, Chief Financial Officer noted, “While we continue to experience log jams in procuring certain components, we are benefitting from the ongoing strength of the worldwide selective fragrance market in which we are also gaining market share with sizable demand both for our key brands and our new licenses. We also see solid opportunity stemming from the reopening of China, particularly in the second half of the year. With first quarter sales further exceeding our expectations, we are raising our 2023 guidance calling for net sales of $1.25 billion up from $1.2 billion resulting in earnings per diluted share of $4.25 up from $4.00. Our current 2023 guidance assumes that the average dollar/euro average exchange rate remains at current levels and there is no significant resurgence of the COVID-19 pandemic.”
